GPU Computer based on NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ Edge AI Platform, Supporting 8x GMSL Automotive Cameras and 10G Ethernet
The NRU-110V series is a Jetson AGX Xavier™ GPU computer used in Edge AI supporting GMSL cameras that can act as a camera sensor hub for autonomous
driving, a control unit for autonomous mobile robots (AMR), or a video transcoding unit for teleoperation of unmanned ground vehicles. It is a turnkey solution with on-board GMSL deserializers for eight synchronized automotive GMSL camera inputs and a pre-installed board support package (BSP) with drivers for selected cameras.
The support of GMSL cameras equips NRU-110V GPU Computer with powerful vision capability for edge AI. Taking advantage of automotive cameras featuring IP67 waterproof characteristic, high dynamic range (>120dB HDR), auto white balance (AWB), and LED flickering mitigation (LFM), NRU-110V can obtain high-quality images regardless of lighting conditions, from bright sunny days to overcast weather and pitch-black nights. More than that, it has a unique synchronization mechanism capable of simultaneously acquiring images from eight GMSL cameras within microseconds channel-to-channel skew, but also accepts GPS PPS signal to align image data with other sensors, such as LIDAR or cameras on other systems.
NRU-110V further integrates various I/O interfaces to interact with different sensors on autonomous machines. It has a 10Gb Ethernet to stream raw images in real-time to another powerful GPU computer performing perception, and a CAN bus interface for in-vehicle communication, or connect an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to localize and determine orientation and position. Additionally, NRU-110V offers RS-232 plus dedicated GPS PPS input for connecting an external GPS module, M.2 NVMe slot for storage extension, mini-PCIe for WiFi/ 4G module connectivity, and isolated DIO for generic controls.
Combining eight GMSL automotive camera support, significant TFLOPS inference performance, multiple sensor interfaces, and 10GbE data transmission, the NRU-110V is a rugged edge AI GPU computer connected to a variety of sensors to fulfill perception and planning on the same platform. It is ideal for AI-based vision applications that require continuous interactions with surroundings, such as UGV/ AMR, ADAS, intelligent V2X, etc.
